Jeremy Piven series canceled by CBS after 13 episodes

Sonja Flemming  CBS

CBS has canceled its freshman Jeremy Piven drama, "Wisdom of the Crowd", Business Insider has learned.

Wisdom was CBS' lowest-rated scripted Sunday show, averaging 7.4 million viewers and a 1.0 18-49 demographic rating. Those numbers aren't great, particularly the one among the age-range beloved most by advertisers.

"Wisdom of the Crowd" saw Jeremy star as a man who develops an online crowd-sourcing app to create a crack team to help him find out who murdered his daughter. It's unlikely he'll ever find the killer now. CBS plans to air the rest of the 13 episodes.

Piven, who is facing sexual misconduct allegations from at least three women, appeared to confirm the show's end in a tweet.

The 52-year-old actor has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by four women - actress Anastasia Taneie, former Playboy model Ariane Bellamar, "Longmire" actress Cassidy Freeman, and advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby.

Amy Meador also spoke to BuzzFeed News and alleged that Piven had assaulted her at her then-home in Laurel Canyon in 1995.

"I would never force myself on a woman", Piven wrote in an earlier tweet. "As a human being, I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard".

CBS didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from HuffPost regarding the circumstances of the show's cancellation, but it's worth noting ― allegations against Piven aside ― the show wasn't exactly a smash hit.
